Metal recycling benefits businesses on both sides of the transaction: those that donate waste metal, and those that purchase the reclaimed materials. It can even be one and the same business on both sides! If your new construction project involves a lot of demolition, and you want to get the most out of it, Honolulu’s West Oahu Aggregate Co is here to tell you how you can seriously benefit from metal recycling.
You can maximize your value by following these tips:
Separate Your Metals: During the demolition or removal of old equipment, sort everything according to metal type, as each has a different value. By sorting ahead of time, you’ll save yourself a lot of hassle when it’s time to get a quote from your local metal recycling center.
Recognize Valuable Materials: Which metals are more worth salvaging? To get the highest cash value, look out for brass, copper, steel, iron, and aluminum. Even old wiring can be repurposed.
Collect Large Amounts: It’s much easier to repurpose large quantities of a material, as it will need to be melted down. Think ahead to future projects in which you’ll need to junk old materials, and consider storing up a large amount of material before calling for metal recycling.
Reuse Recycled Metals: If you’re going to end up replacing many of the fixtures you’re junking, who’s to say you can’t reuse what’s salvageable? West Oahu Aggregate Co helps their customers with this task all the time. Give them scrap metal, and they’ll recycle it into functional equipment that will add value to your business. What was once junk can turn into a jackpot.
Businesses and contractors alike benefit from metal recycling, saving money, and making more responsible choices for the environment. It just involves thinking outside the box.
